What are the symptoms of #mommy brain?


Between the sleep deprivation and new demands on your schedule, it’s no surprise if you have “mommy brain.”

Common symptoms of “mommy brain” are:

  • Forgetting WHY you walked into a room.
  • Telling your child they would get a punishment, then forgetting what the punishment is.
  • Driving around, then forgetting where you’re going and which child you need to pick up.
  • Waiting for a friend at a restaurant, wondering where they are then realizing YOU  are at the wrong restaurant. (That’s what I did just last month!)
